From The Hill--McCain calls out earmarks in omnibus:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) took his crusade against pork projects to Twitter today, tweeting this about an earmark for urban renewal in Scranton, PA: $292,200 4 elimination of slum & blight in Scranton, PA – I think the cast from the Office introduced...@rainnwilson was this you? Scranton, of course, is home to NBC's "The Office." Rainn Wilson plays the character of Dwight.
Heather: Sen. John McCain was also not happy about money being spent for irritable bowel syndrome, surgical operations in space and a rural bus program in Hawaii. McCain spent part of this little tirade carping about Washington caring about Wall Street instead of Main Street. That's pretty rich coming from the guy who had Foreclosure Phil Gramm as his economic advisor until he stepped down after calling Americans a nation of whiners.
